U.S.N.G.F. 1 pdrh A.L.W.M.K


What did I get here? 1 heavy pounder US Navy 1918, but what is “G.F.”? The 2nd scan is of the projectile base.


USNGF= U.S. Naval Gun Factory. I believe this was part of what is now the Washington Navy Yard, home of the Navy Museum, and a DD-931 class destroyer historic ship open to the public. (In case the kids need another place to visit…).


Thanks, any idea what “A.L.W.M.K” is?


ALW and MK would be inspectors of some sort, but I do not know the names.
